2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark dep amber brown with a frothy, lasting tan head. Smells of strong liquorish, ginger, malt, roasted malt, spice and ginger. Medium to light oily body and light carbonation. Tastes like soda but with strong liquorish. elements, Roasted malt with strong dry ginger and a bitter rather metalic finish. The Old Tom is good but the ginger here makes it worse. An interesting novelty though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle
It has enough ginger to dominate the aroma and flavor and to add a peppery bite to the feel, but enough dark malts and pear juice so that it’s not simply ginger flavored.
O: flavorful and interesting, but avoid this if you do not like ginger.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong aroma of ginger as name implies. Hint of citrus and herbs in taste. Dark brown color, no head. Medium sweetness, I would have preferred less sweet. Medium body, flat, abrupt finish. Overall nice ginger taste, a bit more spicy and longer after taste would be even better.
